    When i play games (particularly EA stuff) it starts lagging and i lose internet connection and the game closes down and xfire says lost connection... Why is THIS happening to only me.

    PS.

    1 PC direct ethernet
    2 VOiP phones ethernet
    1 PC Wireless
    2 Laptop Wireless
    +wireless home network

    I have BT total broadband option 3 (2mbps) (changing to sky soon)

    Which one of those machines is the one playing games? the wireless or the wired? And every one else is functiong at the time your disconnecting and lagging? If thats the case I would look at the PC in question and see what firewalls may be in place. Also does the same exact game work on another PC in the house?

    Also might see if there is a firmware update for the router.
